The lightening is still doing well I have 50 flights on it and 22 on the aviation
just went BL and trying to fly my #1 nano a lot its got 58 on it now I really still think its the best one out of all of those.
Please forgive me TP,Hyp, billowy, I still can not believe I am saying a nano tech is best...

I'm surprised that the Nanos are your favorite. Didn't have any luck with the NanoTech smaller packs for my MSRx. Worked well for 5 flights and just didn't keep up.

My Hyperions on my BL are doing well. Strange. I'm finding the most consistant power coming from my Spyder Packs from Progressive RC.

Awesome info Charles. Any chance you can get your hands on a Hyperion? I like them better than my Nano Techs.

Yes I have Hyperions. I have 8 ea. 240s with between 1 and 14 flights on each, 2 new 250s,5 slightly used 250s my son flew 2ea. 250s for months. In addation I have tested and used larger Hyperions in my Blade 400 and in many of my airplanes.

The Hyperion 240s and 250s do not impress me much in this mCPX. I have found that the 300 mAh Lipolys perform much better even though they weigh a bit more.

Myself and son are having the best results to date with HK Nano tech 300s and Lightening Power 300s.

One needs to remember that the power system (setup) and how one flys is going to be a major factor on their LiPolys performance.
